It’s practically the middle of December, and unless you’re one of the lucky ones living in Oz and basking in the Australian sunshine, we bet that flip flops are the last things on your minds. Or any type of open toed footwear, for that matter.
But flip flops are firmly on our minds this cold December morning, as it’s just been announced that the one and only Valentino has added his chic and couture-like touch to a limited edition collection of Havaianas flip flops.
The Brazilian brand has been going strong for 51 years, and has collaborated with the likes of Missoni, Matthew Williamson and Sass & Bide in the past, but it isn’t showing any signs of slowing down; especially now that Valentino Garavani is on board.
The collection may not come as a complete shock to you eagle-eyed men’s fashion week viewers, as you may remember that Valentino’s models strutted down the spring/summer 2014 catwalk in some very cool pairs of Havaianas. Way to whet our appetites, team Valentino!
The flip flops go on sale from January, with prices starting from £175 for women and £350 for men.
